Hand-carved Olivewood Hanging Nativity Decoration
What better way to be reminded of the true meaning of the Christmas festival than a hand-carved, olive wood decoration – all the way from Bethlehem. The talented carvers who make these decorations are part of a group based in Bethlehem, who are members of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO), helping to decrease unemployment, alleviate local poverty and keep alive a traditional craft industry.
Farmed from the trees of Olea Europaea, olivewood is a hard and rich in colour wood, that is prized all around the world for its appearance, density, straight grain and fine texture; qualities which make it a stunning, investment piece for your Christmas tree this year. Measuring 6.5cm, this beautifully crafted nativity in stable decoration is perfect for hanging on your tree or around your home for the festive period.
